3 The Pharisees also came to Him, testing Him, and saying to Him, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for just any reason?”
4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who[a]made them at the beginning‘made them male and female,’5 and said,‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, andthe two shall become one flesh’?6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
7 They said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?”
8 He said to them, “Moses, because of thehardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce yourwives, but from the beginning it was not so.9 And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for[b]sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.”
28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But ratherfear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in[a]hell.29 Are not twosparrows sold for a[b]copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.
19 Brethren, if anyone among you wanders from the truth, and someone turns him back, 20 let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save [a]a soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.
